Browsing The Irish Times over a cappuccino on a Saturday morning is one of life's little pleasures. What's even better is doing it in your local eatery! Twenty2 is a "hidden gem" according to The Travelling Spoon, TripAdvisor and Google reviews. What you will find is friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and good portions of tasty home cooking. You will find a bustling dining room bathed in natural light and lots of chatter from groups on any given day. The regulars are well looked after with a €27 three course menu with a daily fresh fish available 7 days a week.
While you wait for your eggs Benedict, buttermilk pancakes of Full Works breakfast you may be delighted to know that according to The Irish Times we are "Just outside the Whitehall border is Twenty2, one of the best eateries in Dublin 9".
Twenty2 is on the border of Marino / Drumcondra at Sion Hill Road. We are lucky enough to enjoy a quiet front with ample parking and sunshine streaming into the dining hall on good days! We love to see the locals coming back time and again, We are a great spot to bring a friend or family member for lunch or dinner. It's a popular choice to celebrate a family birthday or special occasion as you will often see large groups with balloons, candles and smiling faces. twenty2 is well worth a visit so become a regular today.
Whitehall often gets overlooked as Marino did for many years for the more glamorous Clontarf, Drumcondra, Raheny but if you look closely you see these Dublin suburbs are a great place to live.
